The British-Irish boy band One Direction, known for their hit single What Makes You Beautiful, reduced a father to tears when he saw how happy meeting them made his teenage daughter. Anthony Lee tried everything to score tickets for his teenage daughter Catie Rose, but all to no avail.
According to a report from Hollywood Life, somehow despite not winning any tickets to the sold-out Australian concert, Lee managed to set Catie Rose up to meet the members of the band outside of a photo shoot they were scheduled for. When he saw how happy the surprise meeting made his daughter, he broke down crying.
Catie Rose was not only able to meet all five guys from One Direction--Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, but she got their autographs, too. Even better, however, was the hug she received from Harry Styles.
An Australian morning talk show interviewed Anthony Lee and Catie Rose regarding the exciting event.
"We tried every competition, you name it, we've done it," Anthony said, getting teary again. "She's come so close. This is to make up for it. I'm so glad."
The talk show host asked Catie Rose how she felt about her father's surprise.
"Really good," she said while sobbing, and hugging her father. "I love him so much."
What a wonderful surprise Anthony Lee managed to arrange for his daughter. It's clear he'd go to great lengths to make his daughter happy, and that he genuinely shared in the joy she was feeling when she met the boys from One Direction.
